Sardinia 21-26 oct. 2015

Arrived at the amazing Forte Village Resort on Wednesday afternoon, I was shown the one lain pool and had a swim.1912317_10152991620837132_919198237345870014_n

Thursday was the day to test the bike course and make new friends. And I have to say, this bike course is GREAT! Just the type of course I like, with climbs in various sizes and a need to stay focused all the time. Not even the gloomy weather could take the beauty of the view.

Another swim
